The Las Vegas Aces acquired the Nos. 8 and 13 picks in Monday’s WNBA Draft from the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday.

In exchange, the Lynx will receive the Aces’ first- and second-round picks in the 2023 draft.

“This trade with Minnesota gives us the opportunity to acquire the players to further strengthen our talented veteran team,” Aces general manager Natalie Williams said.

Las Vegas now has five selections in the draft: Nos. 8 and 11 in the first round, Nos. 13 and 23 in the second round, and No. 35 in the third round.

Minnesota still owns the 22nd (second round) and 28th (third round) picks in the 2022 draft.

The WNBA Draft begins at 7 p.m. ET on Monday and will air on ESPN. The Atlanta Dream own the No. 1 overall pick.
